Pitt-Bradford fumbled away a chance in game two at forcing a split.

A solo home run by the Cardinals accounted for the only run through the first three innings. In the fourth, Sydney Mosby walked to lead off the inning and Lauren Hogue followed with a single. Ang Comilla then doubled in both runners, and she scored one batter later to push the Panthers ahead 3-1.

In the fifth, St. John Fisher erupted for five runs to go ahead for good. The Cardinals had four hits in the inning, which was extended by an error. Sarah Stefanon retired the Panthers in order in both the sixth and seventh to complete the sweep.

Starter Emily Fair took the loss, yielding five runs, two earned, on seven hits. She walked two and struck out one.
